It's the best job in the world! Being a Resource Specialist is like putting together a jigsaw puzzle in some ways- and there is never a dull moment. I put together this manual because I really do think I have learned a few shortcuts over the years. I started out as a special ed aide in 1980 and have taught K-12, been a program specialist (no thanks, I like my family of students and teachers), and for the last almost 20 years have taught at a small Title I elementary school on the California coast. I have received excellent feedback on this manual, and plan to improve it over the months to come. I am going to send out 3 Free "How to be a Resource Specialist" manuals to the first people who comment on my blog! And please give me any ideas you have for more tips you would like me to include! Enjoy!
